Darker Passions: Dracula

Reprint of this sexualized version of the classic. Bram Stoker's Dracula was heavy with the repressed sexuality of the Victorian age; here, the sexual undercurrent surfaces and slinks wryly to the center of the action. Dracula is not the cretinous lurker of Herzog's cinematic Nosferatu: he is a sexy beast, a powerful being who takes pleasure, yes, from drinking blood, and ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone who likes erotica
A modern re-telling of Dracula, with an S&M twist. Instead of drinking everyone dry and/or turning them into vampires, Dracula wants to turn everyone into a submissive or dominant. Everyone got spanked. And whipped. Tame lesbian scenes.

I really liked how this book took a classic and revamped it (heh) into modern day erotica. Though I don't usually read erotica at this volume, I found that I just had to continue.

S&M but follows Brham's original closely. Sick and errotic with a good story mixed in.
